What Wine Goes Best With Doritos?

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s easy to pair wine with food at a fancy restaurant but what do you do if you just want some vino with your Doritos?

Well, wine experts Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg are hoping their new book, What To Drink With What You Eat (Little, Brown’s Bulfinch Press) answers that booze baffler and others.

For the record, the duo recommends pairing plain Doritos with sparkling wine, while a Sonoma County Zinfandel is perfect with the spicy kind.

That’s not all: The junk food sommeliers claim a dry Spanish sherry is perfect for KFC.

  • A New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is best with either a McDonalds Filet-O-Fish sandwich or a Taco Bell Gordita.

  • Rose wine is perfectly paired with White Castle Hamburgers.

  • Finally, if you want to dip your Oreo cookies in something more “adult” than milk, the authors recommend a good glass of Port wine.
